    I am in my late forties and I have been thinking of going back to work since my son is old enough to stay by himself some (12.5 yrs). What is your advice to someone my age going to lpn school and becoming a nurse. Am I too old? Could I physically hold out to do the job? Would I have problems...

    I stepped on a broken perfume bottle barefoot. It cut my pinky toe almost all the way off. So, I have about 5-7 stitches, from the inner part of the toe to the edge where the side of my toe is. It is so hard to bandage it! I have wasted about 15 knuckle bandages and gauze in the last 3 days...

    Hello all. I have been trying to get into a local RN program here, but they all have huge waiting lists. What I'm wondering is if I should take a C.E.N.A. 11 week program and work as I am waiting to enter the RN program, or if I just shouldn't waste money on the CENA program? Any thoughts...

    Since Saturday night I have had this 'flu'. It started out as chills, nausea, dizziness, diarrhea, bone and muscle pain, and my skin felt like it was raw to the touch.
